was unacceptable were the broadcasts on fox and cbs during the nfl coverage that day that did not say the words javon belcher or cassandra perkins or murder or post traumatic stress which the kansas city chiefs were going through that day. they were dealing with that suicide. to not talk about it, to not contextualize it was, in fact, a political indication. you're talking about the mental health of these athletes as well as the value of the life of cassandra perkins. that should be criticized notebook. i thought what he did was brave in the apolitical world of the nfl. if i had the 90 seconds that bob costas had at halftime that's probably not what i would have said, i would have said the careful has set out wrong priorities using its platform to do so. but i applaud bob costas against the others, who had said nothing. >> cenk: i love people use the excuse, that's politicizing it. when we discuss anything of any sort it is by definition political. they politicize 9/11, but when there is something that they're uncomfortable with, how dare you politicize it. >> exactly. >> cenk: so now dave, i k
gladys real estate and cb ellis try to rent the space out. i had one offer from a company called cheaper cigarette. and because of my neighborhood, because i get involved in other neighborhood groups, i could not lease that space out to a cigarette vendor. and, so, i've had no other offers in that many years. and then i've had no offers for the last three years since that offer and it's just sitting there vacant. i did, even before the fire, i did know there was a need for a community room on west portal avenue, not only for the merchants, but for the greater west portal neighborhood association was looking at a space their board can meet at. and i also offered that space to other community groups who do need that. and we set up a set of guidelines that we submitted to planning. i've done extensive community outreach with both the west portal merchants, the greater west portal neighborhood association. i've sat down with numerous individuals one on one and i've gotten no opposition personally to myself on this project. so, i'm respectfully asking that you approve my conditional use appli
at miami dade police headquarters. peter dan, cbs4 news. narr: back at the special response team's headquarters manny and his team prepare for manny sync: the subject that we were looking for last night, the one that shot the police officer in the face, we were there for hours yesterday. we checked everywhere, and obviously we didn't, we didn't find him last night. i just got on the phone and i got information that they picked him up in brower county last night, so at the end of the day it doesn't really matter who gets him as long as he's going to jail. and now we're off for another job.
the president put it to cbs news. >> so getting out of this town, spending more time with the american people, listening to them and also then being in a conversation with them about where do we go together as a country, i need to do a better job of that in my second term. >> better job of explaining? >> well, explaining, but also inspiring. >> reporter: wolf, when it comes to a deal on averting the fiscal cliff, negotiations are on deep freeze. from the white house's perspective, they're not going to budge until house republicans come around to the view that tax rates on the wealthiest have to go up. but you know house republicans don't want to agree to any kind of deal that includes that. so right now it's a blinking contest. of course, the white house thinks it's one they'll ultimately win, because in the new year tax rates automatically go up. >> and there could be a recession once again if we go into that fiscal cliff. how worried are officials over at the white house that the president will get a lot of blame for not showing enough leadership in forces a deal through by the end of the y
